    i am taking a condensed 2 week 'mini-mester' nutrition class at my local community college. i attend class 4 hours every evening, 5 days per week, for a total of 11 days. this class started on may 11 and ends on may 25, so i will have completed a traditional semester class in only 2 weeks.

    I tried to take it online but it wasn't offered anymore. I am taking a 4 week course. I start on June 4.
    If you're in New York state you can take the SLN online class

    Wish I were in NYC. I love that city, however I am in a different location. Thanks though.

    yes, i'm attempting to get accepted into an rn program by next spring. my next major hurdle is going to be college-level math, as my math skills are terrible. :uhoh21:

    I'm beginning an online Nutrition course next week at Coastline Community College (F&N 170) here in Southern California which runs for eight weeks for $20 per unit.

    FYI, in case anyone needs an online course! http://www.coastline.edu/

    i am sure you will do well. i am pretty good at math but i don't care for it much, however when i earned my bs degree i took college algebra in the summer because i didn't want to deal with it for an entire semester.

    i don't feel so confident about my math skills right now. for instance, i took 4 years of college preparatory algebra in high school without learning anything. my college math placement scores were so low that i have to take several remedial math classes before i will be allowed into college algebra. i feel uneasy, because my current gpa is a 3.8, and i wouldn't want a bad grade in a remedial math class to lower my overall average.

    Well, now I am all registered for a great class, payed the bargain tuition, and my SUNY Online Network class starts on Monday!! (thanks again for your help, Mystiqx!)

    I am a little apprehensive since I've never done it online before, don't know what to expect from the material ( is it mostly physiology??) or the format, and I usually benfit and enjoy the actual classroom experience...this is going to be great practice of self dicipline for me for NS this fall!!
    Taking it online is the only way I can still visit my family this summer, because next year I'll be knee-deep in the accelerated BSN summer clinicals!
    Good luck to all of us!

    I got a 100 on my first test!!! My online class is about 10 weeks long and so far I love it! To know what is actually going on in your body when you swallow...wow, I had no idea!! All the enzymes, juices and hormones...now I find myself thinking about that everytime I eat something. "Ok, as I chew this food, the juices in my stomach are preparing for the bolus to enter.." I know, I'm crazy. But it's been great...
